    I have a TiVo Premier that Everytime the power when out, all my recordings were erased. I replaced the hard drive with a 2TB and when the TiVo was unplugged, the same problem exists . My recordings are all gone. Why would this happen?

    You need to run Clear & Delete Everything on the TiVo to "marry" the drive to the encryption chip on the motherboard.
